and a conversation with julianna goldman of bloomberg news who did the first interview with president obama since the election. >> he seem a little tired. he seem a little frustrated at the pace of how these negotiations are going but he also came across as a cool call no drama obama that we've come to know from him as a candidate and as president. and he really was very firm. we kept trying to push him on this tax issue, and he looks like he has learned the lesson from various debt negotiations, gej talks and the negotiations of 2011 and he's not giving an inch for the top tax earners expiring this year. >> rose: we conclude this evening with a conversation with stuart stevens former chief strategist and advisor to governor mitt romney and the romney campaign. >> working for governor romney was an extraordinary privilege. and it really was an arne. and i think that he was in this race for the right reasons. he was in it out of a sense of what he could do for the country. to be a small part of that was a great privilege. but i think that republicans need to, we have a good menial, we have to do

goldman of bloomberg news obama called the boehner plan quote out of balance. >> i think that we have the potential of getting a deal done, but it's going to require what i talked about during the campaign which is a balanced responsible approach to deficit reduction that can help give businesses certainty and make sure that the country grows. and unfortunately the speaker's proposal right now is still out of balance. he talks for example about $800 billion worth of revenues but he says he's going to do that by lowering rates. when you look at the math, it doesn't work. >> rose: and here is the president talking about why it's essential for him that there be tax increases for the most wealthy among us. >> i don't think that the issue right now has to do with sitting in a room. the issue right now that's relevant is the acknowledgment that if we're going to raise revenues that are sufficient to balance with the very tough cuts that we've already made and further reforms and entitlements that i'm prepared to make, that we're going to have to see the rates on the top 2% go up. and we're

campaign for president obama which i really enjoyed going around st. paul and some in minneapolis and just go door to door and knock, knock, knock. >> rose: and what do you say to them when they open the door. >> they say i am here for the obama campaign and i want to make sure that you are going to vote and here is where your polling place is. and the interesting thing is that the republicans have left st. paul. you don't find two of them side by side. whatever republicans are left in the cities they are isolated and maybe they are living up in towers somewhere. they have all decamped for the suburbs. people don't like to live near people who disagree with them. and so all of the obama people who i know live with other obama people and everybody around the dinner table, you know, believes the same thing. it is essentially, and they don't know anybody who is voting for romney. and this is a real change in the country. i grew up in a small town where that just wasn't possible to go off and live with your own kind, and so you lived in the midst of people whom you disapproved of, and people w
